New Foreign Language Teacher Aims for Students to Excel
By SOokhra Persaud, Junior Writer
Using inspiration from her mother, Ms. Nancy Idrovo is the Foreign Language teacher at Hillcrest and her goal is for students to do mastery work in her classes.
Ms. Idrovo is originally from the country of Columbia and graduated from the University of Columbia in 1998. Ms. Idrovo majored in the French and Spanish Foreign Languages. Ms. Idrovo was inspired by her mom to become a high school Foreign Language teacher. “I wanted to make my mom proud by becoming a teacher and my mom was always there to encourage me to study and work hard,” the new Foreign Language teacher proclaimed.
According to Ms. Idrovo, she is loving her job as a teacher. Ms. Idrovo believes teaching is “a good way to share information and knowledge”. Ms. Idrovo wants each and every one of her students to succeed and master their Spanish classes. Her goal for her students is for them to pass the class and the Regents with excelling grades.
Mr. Follyga, AP of Foreign Language, stresses how Ms. Idrovo was a great addition to his LOTE staff. Ms. Idrovo was a native speaker which was also a huge benefit for her. She could teach both non-bilingual and Spanish kids. She had originally taught in lower Manhattan, with a total of 11 years of experience. Her former school was a small school where Spanish classes had a mix of all Spanish levels. Ms. Idrovo had the skills to teach each and every student with her techniques.
Outside of her working life, Ms. Idrovo is quite a family person. Sadly her sister couldn't come to the United States, so whenever she has the chance, she loves to visit her family in Columbia, her favorite place to go to on vacation. Ms. Idrovo also loves to do community service work on her free time. Ms. Idrovo works with people and helps them figure out principles in life that will make them a better person.
No matter what the situation is, Ms. Idrovo will not give up. She is always determined to help individuals become even greater and better individuals.
